The National COVID-19 Remembrance is anchored by Covid Survivors for Change, a national community of families of victims and survivors who are working together to support each other, share their stories so that others can better understand the potentially devastating impacts of the pandemic, and advocate for a stronger pandemic response to help save the lives of others.
The COVID-19 Remembrance is endorsed and aided by a diverse and growing coalition, including: American Academy of Emergency Medicine Resident and Student Association, American College of Emergency Physicians, Christian Community Development Association, Coronavirus Survivor Corps, Covid 19 Long Haulers Discussion Group, Covid 19 Support Group, COVID Memorial, Covid Survivors for Change, Covid-19 Loss Support for Family & Friends, EndCoronavirus.org, Equality Forum, Faces of COVID, Faith in Public Life, Marked by COVID, National Association of Social Workers, NAACP, New York Professional Nurses Union, Pandemic of Love, Secure Families Initiative, Survivor Corps, The Human Rights Campaign, TheFridayMinute, Tribute to Humanity.
Hosted by Grammy award-winning singer and Former U.S. Ambassador for Health, Dionne Warwick, the National COVID-19 Remembrance will elevate the voices of Americans who have been hurt by the pandemic and government inaction.. That includes communities of COVID-19 survivors and those who have lost friends and family; frontline and essential workers; communities of color who have been disproportionately impacted–physically and economically–by COVID-19; Americans with disabilities, social and economic justice organizations; the LGBTQ+ community, people of faith, veterans, and others impacted by this global pandemic.
